A Grand Birthday

Happy Monday everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Stamps R Us and today's theme is ...Anything Goes!! For my creation I used this ADORABLE Lili of the Valley image, he's new and I couldn't wait to ink him up!! I colored his skin with Copics...and the rest of the image is watercolored. I haven't used my watercolor pencils in such a long time and it was so fun to paint again! The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, papers and buttons are from my stash. Our challenge will run for 2 weeks...so plenty of time to play along! ...and one lucky winner will win a Copic class from Suzanne Dean! Now head on over to the Stamps R Us blog and check out all of the fabulous creations by the other team members! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Alphabet- O for only three embellishments (3 buttons)
Designed 2 Delight- Anything Goes
Divas by Design- Birthdays
Make it Monday-anything goes

My Time Made Easy- sketch (I flipped it)
Paper Sundaes- Sundae Bar (green & buttons) -C10

This is such a fun and such a perfect card for a boy. I can see why you couldn't wait to color it up. Hmmm...I have forgotten about my watercolor pencils for watercoloring.
